Day 87

Today was supposed to be a busy day with an aerial repair man coming at about the same time as a long awaited visit from Andrew and Sharon.

Firstly the aerial man calls to say the wind is still very high and can we reschedule for Monday. The wind is actually still high but we request he arrives in the morning in case there is an issue and we need to get someone else.

Andrew and Sharon arrive a little late after a problem with an errant burglar alarm at their home. Also, they stopped off at Great Tew to bring cakes, so that was fine! They stay for about 3 hours and I am far less fatigued than I thought I would be – the time simply raced by.  Before leaving we agree to meet up in just a few weeks, if possible at a favourite café of ours in the Cotswold village of Moreton-in-the-Marsh. This will be a target for me to get back into public venues. The visit was a huge boost and I felt better for the rest of the day. Even the black acute fatigue seemed just a little less black and a little less acute.  Was it my imagination or is it finally starting to ease?

Another victory.  Lesley changes the dressing on my drain wound and for the first time there is no discharge and it looks like a healthy scab has sealed the scar. Things are moving in the right direction and I can look forward to feeling better.
